Care, Maintenance and Operation of Tub, Showers and Wall Systems
The following cleaning instructions have been compiled for proper hassle-free maintenance.
Clean the bathing area with an ordinary non-abrasive cleaner, a soft cloth and warm water, rinsing thoroughly after cleaning. A mild solution of vinegar and water may be used to soften hard water minerals. Scrubbing pads or abrasive cleansers are not recommended as they will dull the gloss finish. Avoid the use of all ammonia-based and “leave-on” cleansers.
If you do choose to use a bath-specific cleaner, make sure the label states it is safe for acrylic. DO NOT USE: Products containing ammonia, abrasive cleaners, drain cleaners, aerosol cleaners, or hypochlorite (also known as raw bleach).

Occasionally, your drain may slow down due to hair, etc. In the crossbars. You MUST do the following to remove any obstruction:
- Push down to the closed position.
- Remove the knob by turning counter-clockwise.
- Remove the peg and drain plug by turning counter-clockwise.
- Remove any obstacles from the crossbars.
- Re-install in reverse order.
- The best way to clean your drain is with a mechanical method: push or pull on the clog with a plunger, plumber’s snake or drain auger. *If you must use a drain cleaner, use a funnel to keep it away from the acrylic. Drain cleaner will cause cracks in acrylic that will void your warranty.*
- Always test any products on a small area before applying to complete bath or shower.
Drain cleaner: Caution: liquid drain cleaners are recommended over powders and/or crystal; however, when using liquid drain cleaning agents, bail the standing water out of the bathtub and remove the drain plug. Use a funnel to prevent spills and apply the chemicals directly down the drain. Always make certain that chemicals do not come in contact with the acrylic surface. Use drain cleaners sparingly, so that they do not boil out and attack the acrylic surface.
